What makes tandoori chicken so special?

Unlike other types of desi chicken dishes, such as chicken tikka or chicken boti, tandoori chicken uses a unique masala that really pairs well with the chicken. It uses yoghurt to tender the meat for a powerful succulence. If you are wondering how you can make the tandoori masala or don't know how, do not fret! In this recipe we use Mumtaz's Tandoori Marinade to marinate the chicken, saving you time of creating it yourself and the confusion of what spices to blend!
